  • [Fun] If you could go back in time

    What are some of the things you'd do?
    I'd have so many things to see after missing almost 2/3 of Disneyland history(born in 1989), but the #1 thing on my list would be to see Walt in person.
    Others:
    -Go back to 1955 and explore Mainstreet's old shops.
    -Everything in old Tomorrowland, boo new Tomorrowland.
    -Go see 1950s Frontierland where most of it hasn't become yesterland remnants yet.
    -See Bear Country
    -Walk through the old parking lot to the Disneyland entrance.

      Seriously though I'd actually like to see the area before Disneyland was built and then enjoy all of its original features and experience the newness of the concept with all the first visitors. I love reading about how so many people (including adults!) thought many elements of Disneyland were real when they first entered the park. It would be like entering as a child but with an awareness and memory that would be different from a childhood experience.

          Main thing for me would be to see the giant squid in the 20,000 Leagues exhibit, and ride Haunted Mansion a bunch of times in 1969 to see Hatbox and the original pop ups, etc etc
          when the spooks have a midnight jamboree....

            Just thought of two more.
            -Swim in the Rivers of America and Jungle Cruise waterway before the green dye was added and before hundreds of ducks used them as a bathroom.
            -Go to right before the park was built and gather some oranges from the pre-Disneyland orange groves. I'd bring them back with me to the present day and hand them out at the next Micechat meet.

              I'd take the "secret" escape tunnel out of the fort on TSI-after having a sasparilla.

                I'd tell Walt not to smoke
                Then he'd might have lived longer
                Quote by Al:
                To that end I'd like the Internet community to join me in reminding the Disney company that "it all started with Walt." As you can see below we've created some T-shirts, plus a few simple graphics that you can copy and paste into your websites to let folks know how you feel.

                  That and:
                  - Go to the premiere event for Captain EO.
                  - Watch Walt's opening day speech.
                  - Take a ride on the Peoplemover though the Tron tunnel :thumbup:
                  - Ride Mission to Mars again.

                    -Ride The Haunted Mansion at opening.
                    -See the New Tomorrowland when it was glorious and newly-opened. (Ride the Rocket Rods...)
                    -See LuminAria at DCA.
                    -See Golden Dreams at DCA.
                    -See Seasons of the Vine at DCA.
                    -See the DL version of Carousel of Progress.
                    -See Adventures Through Inner Space.

                    I'm a little inexperience with DL, but if this were a WDW thread my answers would be less embarrassing.

                      Just so you know, much of the oranges grown where Disneyland is now were sold to a wholesaler who sold them at the Grand Central Market in downtown Los Angeles. All you would have needed to do was find the Perricone Citrus stand and chances are some of those oranges came from the grove where Disneyland is now.

                        I would love to go back and redo my first trip to Disneyland in May 1984 and ride Space Mountain in the front seat with my dad. He died about a year later in July 1985

                          I would go back to the 80's/90's with a camera this time, so I can take pix of my visits!

                            60's-70's-80's for me...and I'd take a lot more pix of the backstage areas and kitchens where I worked...and most importantly, take a lot more pics of the many friends that I made, during one of the best periods of my life.
                            God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.

                              1. I would buy the Blue Bayou Restaurant sweatshirt when I had the chance.
                              2. I would move closer to Disneyland like I really wanted to but never did.
                              3. I would buy those cels which I looked through on a visit but didn't.
                              I am old. But still love Disneyland.
